Fish can’t live without water – You can’t live without God - Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)

July 4, 2011
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)
11 It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people's minds. Yet, mortals still can't grasp what God is doing from the beginning to the end {of time}.
Read my bio on Twitter - @BlancaV - and you will find out that I love Jesus. I’m on Twitter to talk about how the Lord finally caught me in his arms after I insisted on living the life of a fish out of water. It’s hard to live outside of water if you were made to swim in the ocean with the big fish. J
I never try to persuade anyone to see things my way nor am I out there bashing religion or trying to convert people [God does that]. That’s not my gifting. I’m out there to tweet Scripture as I’m inspired by the Holy Spirit and to tell all how God “put me back in the ocean” where I belong.  I am also an encourager and a pastoral caregiver – those are gifts from God that I use to help others.
I don’t have a world view anymore nor do I try to get everyone to like me, but I am very nice about it. I simply tell it like it is – how the Lord changed my life. I don’t try to talk to those who don’t believe, but they always seem to find my I love Jesus Tweets. I’m always fascinated by the responses I get from those who call themselves atheists or agnostics and those who bash religion. 
I have a news flash for them: You have God’s handprint in your DNA and he is relentless in his pursuit for you – no matter how you feel. God doesn’t want you flipping and flopping out and about – he wants you back in the ocean where you belong – with the big fish doing the things you were created to do.
I’m just the messenger. J Don’t hate me.

  1. Thanks Blanca. I've lost over 1000 followers with a single tweet about God. It seems to be only Christians who block me and try to get me banned from Twitter. I have great discussions with people of all faiths and I know I need to be there to understand and connect not convert. Although sometimes it's hard to show love in 140 characters when you have a tendency towards sarcasm :)

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
